She is the first woman to win this prize in 15 years history of the competition. Born in Havana 1983, Marialy Pacheco was raised in a musical family and began piano studies from an early age at the Conservatorio Alejandro García Caturla. At 15 she attended the Escuela Nacional de Artes, followed by three years of composition studies under Tulio Paramo at the Instituto Superior de Artes in Havana.
